The true cause of happiness

Sunday, February 16, 2020

"It is our habit to think that there is some reason for our feeling of happiness - the bright green of spring leaves, the sound of laughter of a child, or the sensations you get from playing in the ocean. However what reallly causes the feeling of happiness is the silent, benevolent presence in the background. Every time we approach liveliness with presence / awareness, then this awareness becomes stronger and awareness becomes aware of itself. The bright green leaves, the laughter, the splashing in the water wakes us to this inner space of awareness." - Tara Brach in 'True refuge. Finding peace and freedom in your own awakened heart.'

    It's within our own grasp. Very true. I have listened to some of Tara Brach's recordings.
